"It is a magical place," I heard a young woman say. Amid woods and beautiful gardens, rescued animals are housed in a variety of enclosures. Whether it was baby Maggie Moose hungrily sucking a bottle, a "conversation" between two porcupines, or a black bear lumbering...More
Seeing a moose has been on my bucket list for a long time and this fit the bill.
Super cheap entrance fee ( free for my boyfriend who’s a veteran and kids admission for me - 3.50)

This park is a nice little place where you can see rescued animals that cannot be returned to the wild for a variety of reasons. I wish the signs said why they were there. But it is very interesting to see.
I love moose. I...More
This park was well maintained, not too pricey, and not too crowded. We visited later in the day on a sunny Saturday in September, and we had plenty of elbow room. They have a wonderful variety of animals from birds of prey to small animals...More

As I recall, we were there for about 3 hours, which was just about right for us and our two energetic grands (ages 5 and 8). We lingered at a few exhibits and had time to stop of bathroom and water/snack breaks. I'd suggest gauging the amount of time to the kind of weather you have on the day of your visit. Most of the park is well-shaded. There's a snack concession but we suggest bringing water, as well. Have fun!

the original 'game farm' opened in the 1940s as a pheasant rearing facility. wild orphaned and injured wildlife were housed here over the years. pheasant-rearing was phased out in the 70s and the facility was turned into a conservation education site. real work began on turning into what you see today in the late 1980s.
